New Delhi:

Should one of cricket's most senior officials also own a cricket team? The Supreme Court doesn't seem to think so.

N Srinivasan owns the Chennai Super Kings; he's also the Secretary of the Board of Cricket Control for India (BCCI).

The Supreme Court today suggested to BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan..to choose between BCCI and his franchise Chennai Super Kings team.

"You make a choice..be a member of BCCI or own IPL team Chennai Super Kings, " said one of the two judges who's hearing a case that suggests Srinivasn's dual roles provide for a conflict of interest.

The court, however, made it clear that at this stage, this is an observation and not an order.
